I hope there isn't already a thread about this (I couldn't find one), but Bo and I were talking the other day about a cast for a 999 movie—if such a thing were to ever exist. These are our ideas, but feel free to suggest your own!
WARNING! THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!
I AM SUPER SERIAL GUYS, IF YOU READ THIS THE GAME WILL BE SPOILED FOR YOU, FOREVER AND EVER.
Ace: Liam Neeson
I can't think of anyone who can do a better job of playing both a friendly older father figure and a frightening and dangerous psychopath. Except possibly Michael Caine, but Liam has a look that's much closer to Ace's.
Snake: Kenneth Choi
Admittedly, this choice is a little bit of a reaction to Clover's: She's Asian, so he would kind of have to be too, given that they're siblings. I just saw him in Captain America, and although he isn't in it too much, he does a pretty good job.
Santa: Andrew Garfield
Yes yes, I know, Spiderman, but I think he looks like the kind of guy who could play an tortured, insufferable d-bag. Just look at him, judging you.
Junpei: Michael Cera
I know there'll probably be some hate for this kid (and yes, I know I picked two people from Scott Pilgrim) but take a look at the game: Junpei is kind of a dork. Like, a huge dork. Obviously he's cool too, but I think Michael Cera would work great for him. Can't you just imagine him saying "What's up with my face?"
June: Hayley McFarland
You may know her (as I do) from Lie to Me, where she plays a somewhat younger character (I think she's supposed to be 16?), but the actress herself is 20, which is just about right. She's a good actress, and I think she's got the right sort of look for June.
Seven: Mickey Rourke
Just look at him.
Lotus: Monica Bellucci
Middle-aged woman (she's 47)? Check. Ridiculously hot? Check.
9th Man: Steve Buscimi
Admittedly, he wouldn't be in the film much, but with a nice wig and some glasses, I think Steve would be perfect.
Anyway, let me know what you think! I'd love to know how you guys see some of the characters in 999.
Alles andere ist käse.
